Clean and fun looking sets

Posted by: on August 29th, 2018

Hello Friends,

Despite the sub-10C air temp at 0700, a hardy crew were in the water at the point and along the beach. Sets were in the chest plus range when I watched. Conditions were clean and skies clear. Checking the MHL data revealed that as of 0600 swell at sea was around 2.4 m at 9.5 seconds from the SSE (154-158°)

Wind was west 6-7 kts at report writing time, but it’s expected to go more SW as the day goes along. At the same time the Bureau tells us to expect the swell to build toward 4 metres by close of play. As you can see below, the official forecast is for south easterly swell through to Friday morning. Right now most of the forecast models show conditions settling back toward flatness for Saturday-Sunday, but then early in the new week, some of them are showing another uptick – albeit with southerly wind.

Have a great day and check back later because your correspondent will definitely be out and about with a camera later.

Up the beach, plenty of lines.

Weather Situation

A vigorous southerly flow over the southern waters will ease today as a high pressure system extends a ridge along the New South Wales coast and a low pressure system over the Tasman Sea slowly moves east. On Thursday, winds are forecast to turn northerly and then freshen on Friday ahead of an approaching front. This front is expected to bring a westerly change to all coastal waters later on Friday and early Saturday.
